Holt Algebra Variation Functions In Chapter 2, you studied many types of linear functions. One special type of linear function is called direct variation. A direct variation is a relationship between two variables x and y that can be written in the form y = kx, where k 0. In this relationship, k is the constant of variation. For the equation y = kx, y varies directly as x.

6
Holt Algebra Variation Functions A direct variation equation is a linear equation in the form y = mx + b, where b = 0 and the constant of variation k is the slope. Because b = 0, the graph of a direct variation always passes through the origin.

Example 1: Writing and Graphing Direct Variation y varies directly as x. Substitute 27 for y and 6 for x. Solve for the constant of variation k. Write the variation function by using the value of k. y = kx 27 = k(6) k = 4.5 y = 4.5x

17
Holt Algebra Variation Functions A joint variation is a relationship among three variables that can be written in the form y = kxz, where k is the constant of variation. For the equation y = kxz, y varies jointly as x and z. The phrases y varies directly as x and y is directly proportional to x have the same meaning. Reading Math

Holt Algebra Variation Functions A third type of variation describes a situation in which one quantity increases and the other decreases. For example, the table shows that the time needed to drive 600 miles decreases as speed increases. This type of variation is an inverse variation. An inverse variation is a relationship between two variables x and y that can be written in the form y =, where k 0. For the equation y =, y varies inversely as x. k x k x
